Two vehicles were involved in a head-on collision in Carmichael on Saturday evening, resulting in serious injuries to six people, officials said.
A female driver and three passengers were headed north on Manzanita Avenue near Jameson Court in a Honda Pilot around 6:30 p.m., California Highway Patrol Officer Chad Hertzell said.
“For some unknown reason, she veered to the left and crossed over into oncoming traffic,” Hertzell said, crashing head-on with a Subaru Legacy carrying a female driver and one passenger.
Five people were driven to hospitals and one was taken by helicopter, all with major injuries, Hertzell said.
